“Do you want to teach or become a lawyer?” That was usually the question that followed my answer of “history” when asked what my major was when I started at Penn State in the fall of 1999. After being exposed to the diversity of history course offerings at Penn State, my immediate reply soon became “No.”
As a historian for the National Register Initiative in the Alaska Regional Office, I am responsible for completing nominations to the National Register of Historical Places for various historic sites on NPS property in the state of Alaska.
I am a Stewardship Officer in Penn State’s Office of Donor Relations and Special Events. As a Stewardship Officer, I focus on promoting donor stewardship by designing and developing learning materials for an innovative home-grown web program that supports Penn State’s development professionals.
